Adventures with Little Niece continue

I had to say goodbye to my favourite* Little Niece this morning. Before she left, however, we took a walk down to the marshes with Mummy and Grandparents.

There's an Elder Sign behind you, Auntie Nanila

You're too slow, Auntie. And jealous of my Hello Kitty wellies

Little Niece + alpacas in the mist == SUPAH KYOOT

Pause for a reed fight with Mummy, refereed by Granddad

Auntie Nanila in fuschia Hunter wellies (with mist)

Comin' to getcha with Mummy backup

Upping my strike potential on the Mummy-steed

Galloping off into the mist, having slain Auntie with a reed-lance

Reading the signs

A fig for your signs, I say


Oh, also! Favourite interludes:

Little Niece: Auntie Nanila! You're standin' under the mistletoe!
There is a rush, and I am kissed.
Little Niece: You're STILL standin' under the mistletoe!
I am kissed again. This one pushes me over & out from under the mistletoe.
Little Niece, pointedly: Now I'M under the mistletoe.
I kiss Little Niece. Subsequently, there is giggling.

On Boxing Day, Little Niece rang us on the grandparents' phone. The bloke answered.
Bloke: Hello?
Little Niece: ...Auntie Nanila?
Bloke: Hello, miss. No, this is Uncle Bloke.
Little Niece: ...Auntie Nanila?
Bloke: No, it's Uncle Bloke.
Little Niece, flatly: Auntie. Nanila.
Bloke: Shall I see if I can find Auntie Nanila?
He hands the phone to me.
Me: Hello, Little Niece!
Little Niece: AUNTIE NANILA! We're comin' ta see ya tomorra. I got a kitty bottle and books and...**
There is grumbling in the background from the bloke's vicinity.

* Also, only.
